In the hands of a skilled, precision-based plastic surgeon, facelift surgery can peel away years of stress, aging and environmental toxins, making you look youthful, refreshed and rejuvenated. Dr. Saigal uses minimally invasive techniques to achieve naturally elegant and nuanced outcomes that reflect your unique beauty.
What is facelift surgery?
As a person ages his or her skin begins to sag and fit more loosely due to sun exposure, stress, gravity, and many other factors. The areas most prone to the aging process are the face, neck, and jawline. These are natural changes; however, these signs of aging can make individuals feel older than they really are and hinder body confidence.
Our Orlando facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to tighten the skin of the neck, refine the jawline, and elevate the cheeks—all helping to reduce the redundant neck jowls and neck wattle. It is a surgical procedure that will smooth and firm the skin and give patients a fresh and vibrant, youthful appearance.
Who makes a good candidate for a facelift?
The typical candidate for facelift in Winter Park is between the ages of 45 and 70, has good skin elasticity, and is in excellent physical and mental health, with realistic expectations for the outcome of their surgery. They should be struggling with sagging in in the jowls and neck, as well as facial wrinkles, creases and folds. Dr. Saigal prefers to use minimally invasive techniques first, so he will perform a detailed evaluation of your skin during your consultation to ensure a facelift is really the best choice for your cosmetic concerns.

What does facelift recovery entail?
After the procedure, patients are given bandages to decrease recovery time and reduce swelling. They will need to get plenty of rest and limit their movement to speed up the healing process. Normally, it will take a week until the stitches can be removed. Any minor pain can be treated effectively with oral medications.

When I met this doctor he made me feel comfortable, and stressed that the recovery would be unobtrusive and the results natural. Fast forward 1 month after surgery and I couldn't be happier. My turkey neck is gone and the incisions are almost imperceptible. I look and feel much younger, but nobody knows that I had a facelift. This surgeon and this practice are fantastic, and they have charm where you feel totally at ease and a part of the family when you walk in. They are awesome!
Before & After
How is a facelift performed?
A facelift procedure begins with small incisions that are carefully hidden in the hairline or within existing skin creases. Fat deposits and tissue are separated, then skin is stretched and tightened. Finally, any excess skin is removed. The same procedure is followed again with an additional incision under the chin if deposits of fat in that area need attention.
The procedure can take several hours or more depending on exactly what is being done and if any other cosmetic procedures are completed at the same time. Describing the differences between the types of facelifts offered, and which is most appropriate for you is an important part of your consultation; this may affect the length and location of the incision and the direction in which the deeper tissues of the face are repositioned.
